The bass bite is fair to good at all four lakes. At Santa Margarita, the bass have been best on plastics and reaction baits, with some topwater, but the bluegill and crappie bites are both good on Crappie Nibbles and jigs or worms. Lopez has a fair to good bass bite, especially early on topwater baits, with panfish action also fair to good on small baits. No recent reports from San Antonio. At Nacimiento, the spotted bass action is fair to good and improving, with a lot of fish on plastics and reaction baits early and late in the day and the cooler nights have brought the fish up a little.
